My blades have soul to them, They are entirely hand crafted, and unique. You won't be able to match the quality, performance and passion of these knives with anything store bought. They are heirloom quality, extremely effective tools.
Happy Bruce the rainbow Khukri gets his fancy coloration from a carefully controlled heat Patina I applied after polishing the blade. This does no affect the performance. *Please note* as it is a surface patina, it will eventually wear down with heavy use.
Khukris are one of my favorite blades both to create and use. They originate in Nepal, and are used both in war and everyday life/agriculture. The heavy belly and forward curve results in devastatingly effective cuts and slashes. They are famous for their ability to De-limb things with single blows. I've been practicing bushcraft my entire life, and prefer a Khukri over any other type of blade when things get real out in the wilderness.
The blade is differentially quenched and tempered 80CRV2 high carbon steel. Which is to say, the spine is soft, flexible and durable, the edge is extremely hard. The result of this heat treating method is that you have a springy blade with a killer edge that will last through a long period of use.
The Handle is carefully sculpted to comfortably fit the curves and complexities of the human hand, l carved a huge array of tiny divots for extra grip and style. I've sculpted 1,500+ handles over my career so far, and have gotten the ergonomics down to a refined art.
I harden my knives using a computer controlled kiln. Using this tool allows me to get maximum edge retention out of a given piece/type of steel.
Each blade I sell has a my lifetime warranty, covering reasonable uses. With proper care, one of my blades could last multiple generations.
Victory through fire and steel!
